BEAUTY BAR: Dark Lip Days

Fall is here and so are the amazing trends that come along with it. With the changing of seasons, comes the changing of our makeup color palette. The colder seasons are a great opportunity to break out your dark shades of eye shadow and lipstick for a more dramatic look. These darker tones work so well in the fall because they embody the warm, comforting and nature-oriented feeling we get from this time of year.

This Fashionista has us falling for fall in her dark, earth-toned outfit. Her floral patterned romper works perfectly with the colors of fall, containing mostly neutral tones. She pairs her romper with a burgundy, open front cardigan for a subtle pop of color. Her beige booties tie in with the flowers in her romper, bringing the look together. This Fashionista accessorizes with a light cream colored clutch and a pair of chic sunglasses.

What brings this whole look together is the dark lipstick this Fashionista is wearing. The dark reddish-purple complements all of the colors in her outfit, especially her cardigan. What I love about this lip color is that it is not as dramatic as some dark shades, so it can be worn both during the day and at night for almost any occasion. There is also a subtle shimmer in it that keeps it fun and girly. With her bold lip, this Fashionista chose to keep the rest of her makeup simple with flawless glowing skin and a swipe of mascara.

What’s on the BEAUTY BAR: To complete this perfect fall makeup look, you can go to any drug or beauty store and find the right dark shade for your skin tone. Keep in mind how bold of a lip you want. For a deeper, bolder color choose a lipstick, but for a more subtle color go for a lip gloss instead.
